The Gift encourages you to take ‘thinking outside the box’ extremely literally.
The installation combines innovative technology and narrative aesthetics. Four mechanical robot arms simultaneously bring four screens to life. Onlookers are shown a choreography in which a constant dialogue takes place between the robot arms, the dancers and the screen. The screens act as windows, with a suggestion of a larger imaginary world behind them. What you see is only a framed portion of reality. The movements of the screens sometimes form a limitation and at other times a means of seeing a larger whole behind what is immediately visible.
The Gift by the Belgian cross-media production company Fisheye encourages you to take ‘thinking outside the box’ extremely literally.
